From the Back Cover:

Surveillance and security have historically served as means by which to cope with the complexities of the Olympics and the uncertainties these generate. Based on empirically grounded analysis of fifteen Olympics starting with Tokyo 1964 and through London 2012, contributed by leading international researchers, the book develops the notion of security meta-ritual. This is a meta-level of framing which enables the organization and communication of security as the adjustable sieve that uses surveillance to select what is permitted to enter the world of Olympic spectacle. In this way, it creates highly controlled conditions under which the Olympics can be performed as planned and without disruption.

About the Author:

Vida Bajc is Visiting Associate Professor of Sociology at Flagler College, USA, and co-editor (with Willem de Lint) of Security and Everyday Life.

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 408 pages. This book explores the relationship between the Olympic Games, with its ethos of openness and collectivism, and the security concerns and surveillance technologies that are becoming increasingly prevalent in the organisation of public events. Taking a comparative and historical approach, it analyzes how security and surveillance, as forms of social control, have served as means by which to cope with the complexities and uncertainties involved in the Olympics. The contributors to this edited collection together develop the idea of the security meta-ritual to explain security practices, the aim of which are to encapsulate, encircle and envelop global planned events to ensure control over their processes. In doing so, they create a sterile, controlled environment in which the Olympics can be performed. By analyzing surveillance and security practices in the Olympic Games, starting with Tokyo 1964 and through to London 2012, this book represents a significant effort to understand how this form of social control has emerged historically. It will be of particular interest to scholars of security studies, sports and mega-events, criminology, sociology and anthropology. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Hardcover. Bookseller Inventory # 9780230289550
